I have cherry flooring in my bedroom. What wall color should I use? We have lots of natural light.

Have any photos of the flooring?

Hmmm...
Interesting...
Is the floor too brite?

If you've got a lot of bright light, then you shouldn't need to be afraid of darker colors. That said, here are a couple pallets I've done that take a cherry wood sort of color into account (it's my favorite wood. :) )

Zico Carloca has a good question- are you looking to tone down the floor, or enhance it's natural color?

I've got a lot of cherry in my house - floors, furniture, all the trim around my doors and windows. These are the colors I'm planning to use when I finish redecorating my living room.

Oh how I LOVE cherry wood! It has a beautiful golden glow that you don't see in any other woods. Anyhow... Thought I would weigh with how I would decorate if I had cherry floors.

With Cherry Floors

Actually, this is my bedroom color story. We installed the wide plank cherry flooring with matching four panel cherry doors about two years ago. At the time of the installatin our room was painted a beautiful rosewood color. I love blue and decided to go with a sky blue color for the walls because the rosewood looked terrible. Now, the blue looks terrible.
Our bedroom is located at the top of the stairs with double doors that are open to the rest of the house. I want the area to flow, with similar colors. The main part of our home, walls and ceiling are in a color called Light Coffee, sort of a goldish green color. The trim throughout the house is painted white.
I don't want to lighten the color of the wood. The other problem is that the ceiling is white. So, with the cherry floors, a painted wall and white ceinling it looks like terrilbe.
I hired a decorator. She suggested a purple color with a light grey ceiling and aqua highlights. My husband hated this idea. So, know I am back to square one again.
I loved some of the colors ideas. Thanks for the help

In my den, we have cherry floors and a white ceiling. We painted the walls ivory, which brightened the room. In our bedroom, our furniture, doors and trim are cherry. The carpet is a dark rose, the wallpaper is ivory/pink and I chose ivory curtains.
In your case, I'd try ivory and pale green with darker green & brown accents.

Let us know what you decide on. :) Would love to see pictures.

Just Perfect Color

When I suggest room colors I take into account when and how the room will be used. If you are using it mainly at night, then the fact that you have natural light in abundance is somewhat irrelevant. What other lighting to you rely on in the room. What are your color preferences? Whatever they are, get rid of the white ceiling. How we got stuck in the rut of painting white tops on living spaces escapes me. I would be happy to build a color wheel and post it for you. It would help if you could take a snapshot of the room and especially the wood. I did see that the room is visible during the day so will keep that in mind.

Hello Ana,

I understand the need to monetise CL, but the sexually charged, clickbait ads are quite offensive to many of us. Most of us who have been longtime CL fans don't want to come here anymore because of the ads, including the sparsely disguised ones in the community blog posts. The spam is still out of control too. I've been followed by six or seven spammers in the last two weeks and the forum is choked with it.

There is a negative history from the time AutoDesk bought CL/Creative Market a few years ago and collected our sponsorship money but gave us no perks. They left the site to die. That is when many of the strongest supporters left for good.

You will need to give us a far better experience if you want us to come back to support the site. I run a large Facebook group indirectly related to this site with CL members, and the consensus is that we don't like CL as it stands.


We would also like to be able to post large colourwork badges again, and would like the contests to return (money for you guys, fun for us). Also, could you make a mobile-friendly site? Many on CL use tablets and phones. We would like a better Seamless Lite/Studio and possibly a new ColorSchemer Touch app. Please, please make the blog posts colour and design related only. Look at Molly Bermea's CL blog posts from a few years ago. We don't want to buy windows or other things unrelated to colour.

Dear all,

We are trying to work on more content that would be useful to all of you.
CL team is growing bigger and therefore we need to maintain a delicate balance between commercial side and user experience. If there are any constructive offers on specific changes, we'd love to hear those.
The new team is putting a lot of effort to rebuild CL website and make it a place all of you could feel at home.
Help us. We are open to suggestions. We strongly encourage it actually.

Best,
Ana
